Tickets are now on sale for Rising Stars’ forthcoming production of Back to the 80s.

The cast of nine to 18-year-olds are busy putting the finishing touches to this nostalgia-packed musical which will be staged nightly at 7.30pm at Beccles Public Hall from Thursday, March 19 to Saturday, March 21.

Back to the 80s is the story of the senior class of William Ocean High School that graduated in the 1980s, as remembered and seen through the eyes of a now 40-something Corey Palmer.

Featuring songs such as Dancing on the Ceiling, Material Girl, Video Killed the Radio Star, Footloose, The Final Countdown and many more, this hilarious show is a trip down memory lane for anyone of a certain age.

And with full 80s hyper-colour costumes and a live band, this toe-tapping musical is suitable for all the family.
